Red Dead Redemption gets leaked early on Xbox One


We found out recently that Rockstar’s amazing western from 2010, Red Dead Redemption, would possibly be coming to Xbox One through backwards compatibility. It turns out, the game released a bit sooner than we thought through an unexpected leak on Xbox Live. According to a forum post on NeoGAF, anyone who purchased the digital version was able to download and play the game. Unfortunately, the disc-based backwards compatibility was still blocked.

Microsoft support did take to Twitter to let gamers know “playing a game before it’s been authorized to play on the service is against the Code of Conduct.” I don’t think there will be any penalties, as it was something that slipped through the cracks on Microsoft’s side. Major Nelson from Microsoft even took time to respond to Reddit posts regarding the debacle.

He stated, “Microsoft tests all Xbox 360 games with our emulator to ensure a quality experience across a breadth of titles. Due to an error, some of the games currently in test were accidentally made available. We have since removed access to those games, and apologize for any confusion this may have caused.”

He doesn’t confirm whether or not the title will be officially included on backwards compatibility, but says that there will be an upcoming announcement. Let’s keep our fingers crossed that it will be part of it, as I love that game. It was one of the best games I’d ever played. We’ll just have to wait and see.
